Rowers Are Taking Action To Raise $10K

In addition to the efforts of alumnae/i to save the rowing team, current rowers are having an "ergathon" in the College Center for 120 hours starting on Wednesday.

"Our goal is to create a club model that will enable us to continue competing at the same high level that we have become accustomed to and that we have earned in the last few years," a statement on the Facebook event page states. "We aim to ultimately, through our own financial independence, make program-affecting decisions to ensure future successes without putting a financial burden upon participants of the sport at Vassar."

In addition to constantly having rowers on the machines, the team will also be selling baked goods and spandex, as well as asking for donations.

The team hopes to raise $10,000 at this event.
